on the op-ed pages. this one by warren buffett. whether he would give more of his tax dollars if given the opportunity. he says let's forget about the rich and alternate going on strike and stuffing their money under the mattress. we will look at some other opinions. a republican from tennessee, bob corker, a member of the senate banking committee. he writes in the washington post -- fred in lancaster, south carolina, good morning. caller: good morning. the one caller named interior was pretty close to being right. -- named jerry. it wants to cut taxes, how about we bring some of the foreign aid home to pay down some deficits? how about that? we are talking about obamacare. why not put a cap on a $100 aspirin at a hospital and instead say it's $10? i think that's more than enough. host: senator mike lee as a commentary in the washington times -- that is from the "washington times. mike lee is also a member of the joint economic committee. tony is our next caller in las vegas, nevada. caller: hi. on the fiscal cliff, this has been the unspoken agenda of the democratic party for a long t
, taxes, things that distort economic activity. >> warren buffett wrote an interesting op-ed. he is a supporter of the president but said he does not favor raising rates on people making more than $250,000 but said he would support it for people making $500,000. is there an income level where you support or at least not oppose vehemently the idea of racing rates? >> again, you know, i don't think that's a constructive direction to go in. we -- you know, we could just keep adding ever more brackets, and ever more burdens on people who are productive or have a couple of good years in their business. i think all of that discourages economic growth and discourages risk taking and entrepreneurship. so i'm in favor of moving in the direction of a flatter tax system. of fewer brackets, lower rates, simplicity where we get rid of all the distortions that happen in the tax code, rather than speculating about how many different new brackets we should create. >> i want to get to benghazi. on taxes you talk about closing loopholes and reducing destructions. grover norquist says that would vi
